PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.


Hito Steyerl
The artist Hito Steyerl examines social and political processes both in practice and theory, working at the interface between film and the visual arts. In her films, she merges elements of documentaries, experimental film practice and video art into filmic analyses of the present. The solo exhibition in Museum Villa Stuck is the second exhibition by the film-maker in a German institution, following the presentation in the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein in 2009. Steyerl has also exhibited her works at the 3rd Berlin Biennale (2004), Manifesta 5 (2004), documenta 12 (2007) and the Shanghai Biennale (2008).
